Abstract:
Virtually every school in America is being forced to cope with problems related to at-risk students. These students are those who are at risk of failing both in and out of school. Three experienced art educators who are employed by a single school district, one at the elementary level, one at middle level, and one at the high school level. Each are attempting to deal with at-risk students within their individual art classrooms. The inclusion of at-risk students affects the learning environment of the classroom and the effectiveness of the educator. With the growing concern regarding this special population it is hoped that by studying the methods incorporated by art educators who have long dealt with this dilemma, this research will help other educators learn to more effectively deal with this growing problem and improve the success of those students labeled at-risk.
